Fire Department Pipeline Response, Emergency Planning, and Preparedness Toolkit

Many volunteer fire and emergency agencies across the country have a liquid or gas pipeline running through their response area. Insufficient preparation can result in damages, injury, or death when responding to a pipeline incident. The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is working with the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) to raise awareness and readiness levels within the volunteer fire and emergency response community to improve pipeline incident response outcomes with its Fire Department Pipeline Response Emergency Planning & Preparedness (FD PREPP) program.
